Our vacation in Germany wouldn't have been that much fun for the girls if we only went walking around different cities. They did enjoy that, but they really loved the fun part of the vacation:
There was the trip to the zoo with some of our friends,
Unser Urlaub in Dtld. haette den Maedels nur halb soviel Spass gemacht wenn wir immer nur in verschiedenen Staedten (Doerfern, Ortschaften...) herumgelaufen waeren. Das hat ihnen schon gefallen, aber unsere Tagestouren haben ihnen am meisten Spass gemacht.
Einen Tag haben wir mit vielen Freunden den Zoo unsicher gemacht,and a day spent in Playmobil Land.
und am Tag darauf waren wir im Playmobil Land.
Both girls got to jump on a trampoline at the "Stadtfest" (city fest) in Kitzingen.
Auf dem Stadtfest in Kitzingen durften beide Maedels auf dem Trampolin huepfen. (Danke Ines!)

Everybody had a blast at Geiselwind, an amusement park.
In Geiselwind hatten wir alle eine riesige Gaudi, war ein super schoener Tag.

But the very best thing about it all, was being together as a family for all of those activities. It was great fun and we are grateful we got to spend so much time with our family and friends during those outings.
Am Besten war, dass wir all diese Sachen gemeinsam als Familie erleben konnten. Es hat uns allen soviel Spass gemacht und wir sind dankbar, dass wir diese Zeit mir Familie und Freunden geniessen durften.


  1. I'm glad you had fun! You look good, Anke :-) In fact, you all do - what a nice family portrait. Have a great day!

  2. Having fun with your family is the best!!
    I want to do that trampoline too.

  3. Hallo Anke,
    Das nächste Spiel ist Deutschland - Argentinien. Verspricht ja auch ein hartes
    Spiel zu werden. Bei uns wird ea am Sonntag um 16 Uhr gesendet live. Dann müßt ihr mal schauen wie es bei Euch kommt.
    Die Bilder sind ja schön geworden.
    Nun geht der Alltag ja wieder bei euch ZUhause los.

  4. Welcome back! It looks like you had a great time! Sounds like you found a good balance of activities, touring sites, visiting with family there, and just having fun times with the girls. :-)

  5. Hello Anke,
    I really enjoyed this post that you shared today. Love the family picture, as well as all the others.

    I'm just so glad for you that you were able to spend time with your family and friends in Germany. I'm sure your mom's heart has been warmed many times over as she's pulled out a memory or two she tucked away while you were visiting with her.

    Welcome home!

  6. The zoos over there are fantastic! I took my daughter to one when she went with me many years ago. I remember my Opa taking us to one when we were little too. That photo of the four of you is a really nice one! A great memory of a wonderful time.
    Take Care,
